I've noticed it.









And someone more ear-to-the-ground than I directed me to the topo etc. For a long time I've wanted to get on that rock. Finally a route has appeared. Hurray!

Took me completely by surprise. Pretty sure he'll be stronger than the job is, though.

Good to hear Ryan. Was there a flash mob on the route?

Not much to say. We brought 1 Valley Giant #9 (borrowed), 2 #6s, and a #4 big bro. The big bro was not used. The hard part (overhanging tipped-out 6 or really tight VG ) is short. The rest of the route is very mellow. My partner Matt (visiting Van with me) led the business pitch.
Everyone got good foot spans (solid heel-toe) the entire time. Despite being small I couldn't get any part of my body in.
Get on! It's strenuous but over fast.

Sorry, not much pictures from the trip.
We also did Liquid Gold and ran up Angel's Crest. And my Vancouver buddy led and styled Dancing in the Light. That was an awesome slab. We didn't get as many climbing days in as I had hoped so I'm scheming right now about a return later this summer. The density of quality climbs rivaled any area I've been to.

.....remembering the FFA of that thing was free solo by Greg Cameron.

yes, the FFA solo is quite impressive. Did the person onsight it? If not, he would have known that there is really only like 5 meters of actually hard (10+) offwidth on the climb...

Yes Greg onsighted it. At the time he climbed it - in the early '80's - the climb was mostly ignored. Few climbers at Squish had enough experience in OW to even remotely consider it. We would flail on 5.8OW in Yos.

Greg was - and is - superhuman. He occasionally posts on ST as "eeyonkee".

damn, onsight soloing it... i guess at the time there was so little wide gear available that it would have been a very bad idea to fall. If you fell at the crux you would take a very big fall onto the bolt, you would probably hit the ramp below.

Good job guys thanks for the info, if u dig into the annals of this thread u will find another account of pipeline that was not described as a casual encounter.

Where did u get the VG #9?

Perhaps you refer to what took place near Point Atkinson?
